weekend excitement

so. its been quite a weekend!
friday... i worked. and it was just regular.
BUT before i went in we had our washing machine FIXED!!
we have not done laundry since my trip to FL...
TWO WEEKS of clothes were piled high-
luckily that has shrunk tremendously.
we have also spent a lot of time reading, researching, and ry writing a paper.
regular old weekend in grad school (for ry)

except....
the real excitement:
friday afternoon my brother in law PROPOSED!
(on top of duke chapel i might add)
of course MK said yes!
so that made for a very fun & exciting weekend !
friday night (while i worked) people headed out and celebrated!!
saturday morning we had a "morning after" brunch...
we basically ate the most AWESOME breakfast
at a place called Watts Grocery
DELICIOUS.
and chatted for a few hours about what happened and what the plans are now... etc.

anyway. saturday night more celebrating with mere-
followed by a sunday trip to get manicures.
i told mere since she is going to be showing off her ring she needs pretty nails!!
sooo fun. and makes you feel so pampered.

anyway... i love these two people.
and am SOOOO EXCITED and GRATEFUL to be getting ANOTHER AWESOME SISTER!!!
so yay for mere & colin and the happy times to come as they plan their big day!





love.peace.happiness.
